Space-time quest
Crack casting for a celestial shooting: fine watchmaking stars equip themselves in order to improve their tracking of the Moon position.

French photographer Benjamin Hénon walked on the Moon. He conquered space in order to shoot some phases of fine watchmaking. Harvest moon, first quarter and new moon, so many cycles and complications which enliven watch dials.
The Rotonde watch by Cartier with Day/Night indicator and retrograde second time zone at 10 o'clock outline a Crescent moon hand; The Duomètre Quantième Lunaire watch by Jaeger Lecoultre with the "Dual-Wing" concept, the zero/reset system for the seconds and the jumping stop seconds ensures accuracy to the nearest 1/6th second when setting the timepiece.
The Villeret Quantième Perpétuel watch by Blancpain offers two complete moon cycles of 29.5 days; the Eclipse watch by Jaquet Droz has a Black Grand Feu enameled dial and moon phase display at 6 o’clock.
With the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar watch by IWC, the moon phase display mirrors the moon to show it as it appears in the northern and southern hemispheres.
